A historical period drama (also historical drama, period drama, costume drama, and period piece) is a work set in a past time period, usually used in the context of film and television. Historical period drama includes historical fiction and romances, adventure films, and swashbucklers. A period piece may be set in a vague or general era such as the Middle Ages or a specific period such as the Roaring Twenties. A religious work can qualify as period drama but not as historical one.

Historical accuracy

While historical drama is fiction, works may include references to real-life people or events from the relevant time period and/or contain factually accurate representations of the time period. Works may also include mostly-fictionalized narratives based on actual people or events, such as Schindler's List, Braveheart, and Les Misérables.[1]

Works that focus on accurately portraying specific historical events or persons are instead known as docudrama (such as The Report). Where a person's life is central to the story, such a work is known as biographical drama (examples being Cinderella Man and Lincoln).
